We worked with our designer from the first contact, design, and actual work and he was just fantastic!!! He listened carefully and had ideas based on our likes and dislikes; he was very careful with customization and paying attention to the specifics of our space and location. Along the way we made many additions and changes to the design and our designer was always happy to re-think some things and make modifications. Regarding lighting we had to tweak many things and our designer was always willing to come by during off hours in the late evening to make sure things looked great! Their warranty for the plants is also great and at *any* sign of the new plants not doing well after planting they were happy to replace them. Last, the work crews are courteous, efficient, and great with their craft and work. All and all a great experience, we would definitely hire them again.

The pre-planning by principal Barb Schwarz and designer/project manager Nick Woboril was smooth and quick. Gabriel Camarena and his installation crew were true craftsmen: clever, neat, polite, and perfectionists. Barb came by the site several times to check on the progress. The project was completed on time. We are 100% satisfied with this hardscape, as we were with our past 3 projects.

When we recommend Nature’s Perspective to others, we are asked, “Are they inexpensive?” We answer, “No. But they are a great value – their work is the highest quality; their work is guaranteed; they do not take short-cuts; we don’t have to clean-up after they leave; they make certain that we are 100% happy with the project.” Also note: many of Nature’s Perspective’s employees have been there for years. That says a great deal about how a company is operated and how the owners treat their employees.

Our experience is “you get what you pay for”. Hire Nature’s Perspective if you want a professional job, done on time, and guaranteed for years. We won’t use anyone else.

We are incredibly happy with the new tumbled paver walkway and 2 patios that your hardscapers recently installed.  They basically took what might be described as a rough prairie of broken concrete and transformed it into an enchanting place of refuge, relief and relaxation.  The degree of craftsmanship showcased in our yard would surely win 1st place in any competition between such highly skilled artisans.  Further, their work ethic was unbelievable—no matter how cold or windy they would somehow just keep “powering” through it.  Their incredible efforts resulted in the creation of what we and our neighbors consider to be not merely just another hardscape but an enduring representation of art.

We love Nature’s Perspective, they have been our landscape designers, installers and monthly landscape providers for over nine years and for two homes. The principals, staff and crew are very professional, courteous and attentive to our needs. Each of our newly landscaped gardens always attract accolades from our friends and neighbors (and a few copy cats, I have to admit). We could not be more pleased with Nature’s Perspective and recommend them without reservations.

We could not be more pleased with our experience with Nature’s Perspective.

-John and Andrea, Chicago

They are absolutely terrific. We work with our designer all the time. She is out here when the guys are doing the work; which is what I like about them. They are truly professional. It’s very nice. Their pricing is always right in line. They are not the cheapest in the area but the price is very fair. They are responsive and professional. When you find somebody good, you stay with them. I would use them in the future.

-Robert, Northfield

They submitted carefully drawn plans and consulted with us at every step. They guarantee their work and their plants. In fact, some of the plants didn’t look too good after several months, and they replaced them promptly. They are careful, competent professionals in every aspect of their work.

-Kayla, Evanston

I am very happy with the result, very positive experience. Our designer was excellent and very helpful, a pleasure to work with her.

-Carolyn, Evanston

We are extremely satisfied with the work done, from conception to planning to the work itself (including coordinating with other contractors), and follow-up. Everyone with whom we came into contact, from the owner to the office staff to the workers, was professional, friendly, and customer focused. They give expert advice, but there is never any pressure. This is a very high quality operation, and they give good value for the money. We use them for continuing maintenance and will go to them again for further work. If every contractor was as professional and customer focused as Nature’s Perspective, it would be much easier and more pleasant for homeowners to maintain and improve their property.
